While at home during the lockdown, we’ve all been trying different ways to entertain ourselves. Here are some fun games and activities that you can do at home by yourself to keep boredom at bay:
1. Hula Hoop
This is a very fun activity that can also double as a sort of exercise. Watch a few hula hooping videos online and try to learn different kinds of tricks and techniques. For instance, you can try to master the technique of working the hoop from the hips to the neck and back down. Challenge your friends for a competition!
Everyone has played hopscotch during school right? Why not bring it back! It’s one of the best single-player games because it provides a little physical activity too. There are tons of different ways to play this old fashioned game. If you get tired of hopping and turning, just scribble and draw using the chalk.
Solitaire is one of the most well known one-player indoor games, and you can learn it at any skill level. Once you know how to play, all it takes is a deck of cards. There are many benefits of playing solitaire with cards (as opposed to on a computer) because shuffling and laying out the cards helps fine motor skills. And you have to learn to resist the urge to cheat!
Brainteasers and puzzles are another kind of fun game for one person. They are great to keep you busy and occupied while also giving your brain some good exercise. Many puzzles and riddles are available for free online. You can solve them by yourself or share them with friends online.
5. Indoor camping
This is a unique and fun experience to try at home. Use blankets, pillows, and sheets to make a cozy indoor tent. Once built, you can do a range of activities – you can set up a picnic, coloring book station, watch a movie, read a nice book – whatever you want! Your tent, your rules.
These fun activities are surely going to help you kill time and also develop some new skills. Be sure to continue to experiment and have fun. Being at home doesn’t have to be so boring!
